  Purpose

This study is to assess whether sofosbuvir in combination with ribavirin (RBV) administered for 12 or 16 weeks is safe and effective in patients with hepatitis C (HCV) genotype 2 or 3 (GT-2 or GT-3) as assessed by the rate of sustained viral response (SVR) 12 weeks after discontinuation of therapy (SVR12).

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy 12 weeks post dosing [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The proportion of patients with a sustained virologic response (SVR) 12 weeks after the end of treatment

  • The safety and tolerability of sofosbuvir+RBV when given for 12 or 16 weeks [ Time Frame: 12 or 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The safety and tolerability of sofosbuvir+RBV when given for 12 or 16 weeks as measured by review of the accumulated safety data


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy 4 and 24 weeks post dosing [ Time Frame: 4 weeks and 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To determine the proportion of subjects who attain SVR at 4 and 24 weeks after discontinuation of therapy (SVR4 and SVR24)

  • Amount of circulating HCV RNA [ Time Frame: 12 weeks post dosing ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To evaluate the kinetics of circulating HCV RNA during treatment and after treatment discontinuation

  • Characterization of viral resistance [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To evaluate the emergence of viral resistance to sofosbuvir during treatment and after treatment discontinuation
